Ole Miss transfer Keidron Smith can be a contributor for UK football

LEXINGTON — It started in high school with memorizing wide receivers’ routes. Maybe just one for any given game.

Talent could take Keidron Smith a pretty long way in those days — to three-star cornerback status and a scholarship to Ole Miss — and so he didn’t need much more than that. In time, he came to crave it.

Fast forward to this fall, and Smith is finishing his college football career at Kentucky. He’s a fifth-year senior and a certified film-room fiend. The film study he used to do in passing has become a passion.

“(Film study) slows the game down so much more,” Smith said. “It makes the game so much slower, and that allows you to play so much faster.”

It’s a lesson Smith absorbed at Ole Miss and, as importantly, one the Kentucky coaches hope he can start to impart to the Cats’ younger corners.
